Lecture: The Buzz About Pollinators

May 15 @ 7:00 pm

Part of the OCCA Lecture Series “Be Informed”
Louis C. Jones Center at The Farmers’ Museum • Free Admission

Join OCCA at The Farmers’ Museum on May 15th at 7pm for its “Be Informed” lecture series featuring Dr. Jeffrey Heilveil on the subject of Native Pollinators. The program will speak to The Farmers’ Museum’s new exhibition, “The Buzz about Pollinators,” that opens on May 11th. (For attendees wishing to view the exhibition, it will be open for 30 minutes immediately before and after the lecture.) From well-known bumblebees to leaf-cutter bees, hover flies, and hawk moths, there are hundreds of different pollinator species in Otsego County. The lecture will examine some of our native pollinators and the plants they pollinate, both common and rare, and explore how we can best support these hardworking species. Dr. Jeffrey Heilveil is a Professor and Chair of the Biology Department at SUNY Oneonta, where he teaches courses in entomology, aquatic entomology, and stream ecology. His favorite classes are the field-based courses he teaches in the summer on the Thayer Farm property of the SUNY Oneonta Biological Field Station. His research primarily focuses on how human alterations to rivers affect stream insects. He earned his MS and PhD in Entomology from the University of Illinois.
